Grevillea Carpet Layer
Not as soft as a real carpet, but much less pointy and stiff than some other groundcover grevilleas.
Grevillea 'Carpet Layer' PBR
APPEARANCE: Ground cover native grevillea with stiff, deeply toothed leaves, rich reddish-brown when young, and large pink toothbrush flowers winter to summer.
USE FOR: Ground cover to retain soil and moisture, suppress weeds, hold banks together, keep roots of larger plants cool in summer or warm in winter.
CLIMATE: Tolerates light frost and salt spray.
PLANTING: Well drained clay loams or sandy soil with a neutral to acid pH. Prefers a full sun to part shade position.
CARE: Water during the first 8-12 weeks until the plant is established. Prune after flowering to keep it neat and dense. Feed with a slow release native fertiliser when buds form - grevilleas can be phosphorus-sensitive so the P ratio of the fertiliser needs to be under 3%.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 0.2 - 0.4 M x 3 m W.
YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
